O Ashara, Asharra! Wherefore Art Thou?

Damn you, George RR Martin!
Well, I thought that I at least had the name of my fantasy world nailed down. Not so. Apparently there is a character named Ashara in George RR Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" world. Ashara Dayne. Possibly Jon Snow's mother. Well crap.

So, I thought, I'll just add an extra r to the word. Asharra. That works. Until I Google it and find
another fantasy novel using it: "The Winds of Asharra" by R. Leigh. And it's not just a character, it's the name of their world. Arrrrrgh!

So now I have to scrap the name entirely and start from scratch. Phooey.


  1. I had to rename my first fantasy world (Jarrenea). something like 6 times.


    1. Yikes. I hope it won't be that problematic with mine.

  2. Name it Hubbs - bet you don't find any SF worlds with that name!
